Today's forecast is not looking promising and the rest of the week is predicted to be 'a bit dismal' as well. That being said, there are a few things doing spectacular in the garden. A few weeks ago, this is how one of my planters looked - very healthy, but much smaller in comparison to where it is today. Photo taken 6/22/09 (Far right - Eryngium 'Sapphire Blue'.
I wanted to point out another amazing perennial. It is called Eryngium 'Sapphire Blue'. Its common name is Sea Holly. I have attached the link for the patent information from Blooms of Bressingham. http://www.bobna.com/plantlist/eryngiumsapphireblue.asp This will give you the growing requirements. It is a traditional staple in British borders but performs exceptional in this climate. Also in the photo is bronze fennel. This is a newly established plant bed, mainly for our figs that we planted this year. It has great southern exposure and is very protected.
Here is a photo taken in today's drizzle. As our good friend, Artie must be saying this morning, "Is it greybreak yet?"
